Steakhouse
With Echo & Rig Chef Sam Marvin has introduced a pioneering new concept transforming the long-held theories behind the steakhouse formula.

We put a unique nose-to-tail spin on the traditional steakhouse, allowing diners to indulge in the best cuts of meat for incredibly approachable prices.

A butcher before a steakhouse, we use every part of the animal. We care about every animal - how it lived, what it ate, and how it was cared for.

Our 7,000 square foot space is located in the Downtown Commons Neighborhood (DOCO) in the lobby of The Sawyer Hotel. Situated on the bustling J Street corridor facing the Golden 1 Center main entrance.

We have a versatile space: a private dining room with audio/visual capability, an outdoor patio, and an outdoor bar available for rent.

    This was our second visit (we live about 3 hours away). Our first visit was “accidental” and it was amazing. We had eaten at the bar and were tended to by Elisa (sp?) She was great! Service and recommendations were amazing. She had suggested the Steak Bavette, which my girlfriend fell in love with. Anyway, because of Elisa and the Steak Bavettte (I loved the asparagus and fried egg appetizer) we’ve been trying to return. We again had an excellent meal and the service was top notch. The Steak Bavette and Branzino ala Plancha were amazing, as were the appetizers and cocktails. We will definitely be dining here again.

    The food overall is pretty good. Dessert, appetizers, and steak were spot on. I just didn’t like the garlic chips that went with the steak. Tasted burnt and bitter.

    We were there with another couple and this was our first time at the restaurant. This was acknowledged by the waiter and then the general manager came over to welcome us too. Very classy! The menu provided lots of choices and all of the meals we ordered were great. The Gem Salad was perfectly dressed. The steaks were cooked perfectly and the desserts were a good ending to the meal. We are looking forward to going back.

    Echo & Rig... I'm smiling when I remind folks this is a 'lively' (loud) restaurant. My wife and I have dined here before and knew the accoustics might remind you of an Irish bar on St. Patrick's Day. I did receive an excellent booth as requeasted. Nothing can be done about the noise level. Great location located within Kimpton's Sawyer Hotel yards from the Golden 1 Arena. Zach, our server was professional throughout our meal. Shared Caeser Salad (the romaine was fresh & crisp). Hartford Chardonnay by the glass was perfect. Filet Mignon's arrived hot, medium rare as restquested. Grass fed and cooked over red oak gave the meat a very slight campfire smoked aura. This was not bad, just different. Large, hot, crisp potato chips on the plate. The garlic mashed potatoes were a bit too firm, dry and in retrospect excess. Glasses of Daou Reserve Cabernet complimented our steaks. Coffee and scoops of quality chocolate ice cream rounded out our experince. My tips.. have reservations and requesta booth sitting towards the back away from the front desk. Accept the noise volume and have a good time. I recomend Echo & Rig especially if you are heading to the Golden 1 Arena.

    It was very hot in the restaurant, we asked the manager to crank up the AC, towards the end of the visit it started to some what cool down. The food was good the drinks were good but the portions were small. Overall our experience was ok but nothing to brag about.

    I haven't eaten here in a while...food was ok...a few of us our breakfast was cold. Others in my party were happy. The server rarely came back so we had to ask other servers for help. The ambiance is nice...I would try again for dinner to see if its any better.

    My sever Was Zach and I’ve been here before so he’s not new there. The service was bad, they sent out hamburgers with no cheese and Mayo for the other family that was with us. My husbands steak was good! Part of my salmon had fell when the plate landed on the table. There was a hair in the calamari and I order that all the time so I was surprised. It was just terrible. Brought the wrong glass of wine. I asked for Cabernet and it was something else and when I asked he was like yea it’s the wrong one and apologized. Rather than this night I love this place but it ruined my daughters night

    We sat outside which is nice to people watch. However, the service and table service was really bad. When they brought our appetizers out we had to ask for silverware and small plates. After they cleared our appetizers they also took over silverware which was expected. However, after our entrees came out we once again had to ask for small plates and silverware. We also had to ask for bread and butter. All of the other tables had it brought out to them automatically. I guess they forgot about us. Once we were done with our entrees we had to ask our server to clear our dishes so we can enjoy the rest of our wine without dirty dishes in front of us. We also were asked by the hostess, the manager, and the server if we were celebrating anything. We told them that it was our birthday's. They acknowledged it but we thought that we might at least get a scoop of ice cream or something small. We got nothing. Overall it was a disappointing experience. They are usually on their game so I'm not sure what happened on this visit. Hopefully this is not the new normal. We will give them another shot only because we usually have a wonderful experience.

The food is sourced from top quality sources and at the hands of excellent and talented chefs tasted simply divine! The entire waitstaff didn’t disappoint to help create a wonderful experience.

    Steak was extremely tough, not worth the money. The sides were very tasty, the waitress and host were very nice. Considering that this is suppose to be a steakhouse we were very disappointed in our steaks. Probably will not return, there are much better restaurants around with quality steak. I would recommend this restaurant because I want to see if other people had the same experience as I did.

    We’ve been to echo and rig a few times prior to this experience and it felt that their food quality and service both took a turn south. We ordered some apps (crab cakes, Brussel sprouts, and calamari) all of which were fine. However steak options limited everything bone-in was sold out - which is fine that happens, however my wife’s filet mignon came out almost rare (she asked for medium well) - my ribeye was perfectly cooked. My old fashioned was not quite old fashioned, small glass, ice cube and overly sweet. Ella has a much better old fashioned. The service was subpar. Our server forgot multiple times (he forgot to offer bread, take our order in a timely manner). The desserts I do not recommend - everything is either ice cream with some afterthought thrown on top or panna cotta that had consistency equivalent to yogurt. Hopefully echo and rig corrects this. Nice ambiance, and a little loud at times with large parties, fair to good tasting steaks, but otherwise not worth the venture.

    We will definitely be returning to this fine dining establishment. Immediately after being seated, the restaurant manager came over to introduce himself. Shortly thereafter our fabulous waiter greeted us and explained how everything works. We placed our drink and food order. Nothing was delayed. Everything arrived before it was expected and tasted far better than we expected. I would definitely recommend the garlic mashed potatoes and the filet mignon. You will not be disappointed. 5 stars.

    We've been a few different times now, and we've always had a wonderful experience. The environment is beautiful and the food is always top notch. The service was wonderful and we just thorough enjoyed ourselves. We started with a cauliflower appetizer that was divine, then we ordered the filet, the scallops, and mashed potatoes. All were cooked perfectly and had amazing flavors. The wines by the glass are also reasonably priced, which is a bonus. We shall return!

    I came here for my boyfriends birthday dinner last night. Everything was amazing. We had Liz serving us. She made great suggestions and was always nearby if we needed something. She recommended two delicious steaks with the charred onion dipping sauce. They were to die for. The bone marrow appetizer was also incredible. Mashed Potatoes and Mac and Cheese were also top notch. Wouldn’t change a thing about our experience here, and Liz’s service was perfect. Thank you!

    First time dining with Echo and Rig. The service was first class and the staff could not have been more attentive. I dine out frequently while traveling on business and have dined at most of the top restaurants in the country so I feel confident stating that Echo & Rig is an excellent choice for your next occasion whether that be business or personal.
